Prostate Cancer Support Group
Ken Willoughby was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in 1992. He and his wife, Jan, were not able to find anyone else living with Prostate Cancer with whom to discuss their situation and so, along with four other interested people, formed a support group – the Prostate Support Association (PSA). Since its inception and first meeting in 1992, more than 14,000 men along with their partners, family and friends have attended meetings.
The PSA provides:
- Information - A venue for the sharing of information both in a formal format through presentations from medical professionals and through informal discussion with other group members.
- Peer support – A caring environment where anyone touched by prostate cancer can discuss their situation and bring up concerns and issues with others who have experience with the disease. This can be tremendously reassuring for those who are newly diagnosed and their supporters. Members from the group also provide hospital visitation for those receiving surgical treatment.
Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month (See Meeting Schedule) at the Begbie Hall at Jubilee Hospital, 2101 Richmond Road, Victoria, BC
Parking is available at the rear - $4.50 for three hours, cash only
